One of two officers who arrested a Vancouver man in a case of mistaken identity has been reassigned to administrative duties pending the outcome of an internal investigation, police said yesterday.

Yao Wei Wu was injured on Jan. 12, when police knocked on the wrong door in response to a domestic assault call.

“The VPD has assigned a team of senior officers to this investigation and has utilized the services of a Cantonese speaking sergeant to liaise with the Wu family,” said Insp. Mario Giardini.
